We’d like to share a few of our favourite new store design concepts that have caught our eye in 2014 (so far). Take a look…

Archive Store – Melbourne, Australia

Located in Melbourne’s landmark art deco Mitchell Building, the Archive Store uses whitewashed walls, steel, rope and versatile marbled islands to display recycled and affordable designer fashion. The edgy retail space also doubles as an event space, regularly hosting exhibitions and artist installations.

Nike Basketball – Chiba, Japan

Upon walking into the biggest Nike Basketball store in Japan, shoppers encounter an immersive experience based on a ‘half-court’ design format. Key to the store environment is its height; wall fittings and a large halo light have all been strategically placed at the standard basketball hoop height of 305cm to create a strong sporting presence throughout the store. Other key features include white floor markings, an 8m shoe wall, seamless wall screens and product presentation tables.

The Blue Yard – Berlin, Germany

From the masterminds behind Berlin’s premier jean store 14oz, The Blue Yard was a one-month pop-up collaboration from the first Nudie Jeans Repair Shop, Denham The Jeanmaker and Edwin Europe. Each of the brands celebrated the union with live, local music, film and art. Shoppers were also offered the opportunity to have their favourite jeans repaired on-the-spot for free.

Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop – New York, USA

Earlier this month Marc Jacobs launched the Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop, a pop-up store during New York Fashion Week where visitors used ‘social currency’ to pay for items. Tweets, Instagram photos and Facebook posts using the hashtag #MJDaisyChain earned shoppers perfume, necklaces and small leather goods that could be collected in store, with the best-of-the-day winning leather handbags. Alongside the store’s main offering, customers could also receive a complimentary manicure, explore the Marc Jacobs beauty bar, take selfies in the ‘Daisy Photobooth’, all while using the store’s free Wi-Fi.
